Perhaps we uncharitable indeed we number among our tie ods Many colonization lists who such a sure still we cannot but in fit a from the est dim Lumi bed of the Chanc ter of Bee Valence that a majority of i see who in old Ita Mehemet arc too much like the minister above mentioned.

Of the most frightful and atrocious character because it apparently supports the Parent despotism from which it sprung he is by the commentaries aforesaid guilty of foe so much reprobate crime of incendiary so ? Lipkje hand the London writer May be under a Inis Lake and also. If absolutism has gained ground the ear once it does not certainly follow that it has in fact. If we must submit to this last named melancholy conclusion i fear the ill example of America May have had its full share in producing it. To say no thing o f the i the to tb0 to i u the Spanish provinces to establish Law and order under the Banner of Liberty How is it with us a Aye with us the boasted paragons of Freedom ? one sixth of of population subject to the Yoke of a despotism such As Europe Aye and the worst government in it would utterly a Volt at palladium of Liberty to be rifled from her Temple in Aid of despotism a and in support of the dark a a idol a rising and ravening uncontrolled on the very Vitsos of Freedom. But what More could european despotism ask than the knowledge of disgraceful facts., to dissuade subjects from propagating the tree of american Liberty the fruits whereof they May say at least with some plans bitty Are Gall and bitterness. But the mortifying contrast stops not Here. The. Despots of Europe have Learned Wisdom by experience a would to god we might do the like i they Are idea voting u far m despots can do without of i Felting their character to make their people Happy. On some Points no doubt they become fathers to their subjects. Look at Prussia. Her King Hai put into practical operation a better system in the main of common school. Education than exists else where on foe Earth absolute he is he Holda that absolute s Way Over the affections than the fears of the people and we Jive no reason to doubt that the prussians arc far More advanced in preparation for self government than they were thirty years ago. Look How mortifying a look even at Austria and we Are told there is much. I pro f pm e it in 0 Nodi to 0 n us education among the common people. And do you hear of any european despotism snatching criminal from the appointed process of Law and burning them with hellish Malignity at the stake while judge and jury approve and Overlook the procedure a y Hopes like those of the bulletin n., Are for the downfall despotism and that worst of All despotism and the Mother of it which broods Over tiie Region round about St. Louis.

Even of the editor of the bulletin take the of Lbw ing paragraph of nov. 21, 1837. The Louisville journal states that an English abolitionist in the South was recently seized by the citizens and after being blacked As a negro was set up at Public auction and sold to the highest bidder. W e arc those who think f�0 6 of Sito Silil Seldom if Pojer in a selves in. The place of authority and Law but if such things must and will be How much better that punishment of this kind be inflicted than to see acted Over such a tragedy As occurred at Alton. None can condemn interests and stir up insurrection in too Many Coli sciences to be Able to find at once their True Plant in the love and reverence of their but they need not be disheartened. Humanity will not forget them. The very children of those who now Cau them madmen and fanatics who treat them with scorn and contumely with a a Brick Bate and stones a will vie with one another in their and Garn Ishing their sepulchres.

It is not in any human Power to save it go it must and will and they who think it can fee in Ference in favor of free kor retake red Are ignorant of the age in which they live and of the influences at work around them. They who would wish to retain it Are strangers in their genestion and. of a quote iii studied As the last rep e of an order Oft to nos of which we Are beginning to kno no thug save through the Uncertain me mum of hoary tradition. They should be labelled numbered and arranged in tic cabinets of the curious As genuine specimens of the antique. In that inviting future which drawer for m if the a a patriarchal a Reksio Of ter and slave and even that of employer mid employed will find no admittance for in that future Man is to be Man and nothing More and nothing when that future has become the present and Man stands up by the Side of Man in the native dignity of a and in. The image of h is maker t hey who now Cep and yearn toil my struggle suffer reproach and persecution for the rights of Man will be owned As the True nobility of their Day the god sent benefactors of b it to Illus rate this subject clearly i shall propose a p cacti Cal. . Suppose a Man has purchased a new Plantation in Kentucky. He needs 42 slaves for its cultivation. I choose this number because it is a multiple of 6 and 7. These at $1000 a piece Cost him. $42,000. But in order to prove that slaves arc not overwork ., we ofte e told that one free labourer at the North performs More work than two slaves. If this be the Case 21 free Inen who could be hired for $100 a year would perform As much As 42 slaves at $1000 $42,000-2,100�? $39,900 Clear gain in favor of free labor. Add to that . The latter , the planter would be freed fro m the Trou ble of pro Viding for the lab 0.r-cr�?Ts family. But As the foregoing proposition May be deemed extravagant i shall propose another. Lord Brougham has stated in the House of lords that in. Antigua six. Free kor perform As ,. Work As seven slaves. Then 3 8 Fri a homers will do As much As 42 slaves. Now suppose the planter should pay those 36 each $100 in hand there would be a saving of $38,400, add to a his that if a free labourer run away or die his employer is nothing the poorer. Suppose the $42,000 could be i uves ted in so me business that would produce 10 per cent then the interest would pay the labourer $100 per annul and the capital remain untouched. But suppose the Man owns 48 slaves which he has by inheritance from his fatherland suppose he sets them free o u condition that they shall serv him for wages it is evident that in this , he would Only lose the difference Between the keeping of a slave and the wages of a Freeman. Suppose that a save As is sometimes the Case should earn his master $400 per annul then 42 at $400, 42 ,en�?49 slave�?4 9 to 400, mily of 6 or More females in a Carriage about 20j feet Distant were looking on with perfect composure. I approached As speedily As i could walk which being noticed by his family he ceased Beatin her and started her in the Road on before him. Asked her what her master whipped her for she replied that she was Fame and could not walk fast enough. I next accosted him. By this time he lad taken his seat in the Carriage and started but my feelings compelled me to rebuke him in severe language. I suppose he must at least have Given one Hun dred Las Hes tit the unfortunate victim. I do think he Struc k her Twenty to iii is a after i discovered him. She was standing with both hands uplifted and sueing for mercy. Truly yours with respect John l. Van deman. $16,800 19,600 $2,800 earnings of 42 slaves at $400 each. Keeping at $20 each. $16,800 840 Clear gain 42 freemen equal to 40 slaves at �T�400.

Suffer me to draw the attention of abolition its to Fifie Small yet very significant and Omi Toua word used by them in reference to that portion of our fellow citizens Hose cause they is . I mean the word a Quot a Colo i do not to All like the use or the look of this word As applied by abolitionists it sounds and looks so like a a .�?� do not abolitionists hereby recognize uphold and perpetuate that very Mark of invidious dist tettion Upo n which a the prejudices and o oppressions against which they contend Are founded ? will not the term a a coloured a mexican turn out As great a cheat As a apprenticeship has proved to British philanthropists cannot slave holders use the Opp Rotous term without affecting Iligir a Domestic institutions a their consciences or their hearts any than a colonization has done a and will not to Sla very men. Who o it their Skinny prejudices turn round upon anti slavery opponents of those prejudices and inquire a what d american mean be by chore farther wyme there Are some of the so called a a Dolored. People who arc fairer than pc fee so called a a White peo plea while there exists such Manifest diversity in the a lord of a a Whites a while descendants of a red men a Are a classed with a a Whites a and while a a Whites hold that a a Blacks is no a lord at see no reason or propriety much less of Chui to in s Hing citizens especially not in in Veci tize.ii8, by an odious abolitionists at least should refrain from every thing and eve it word which my imply or seem to recognize a contemptuous distinction. If they must use a term whereby to designate the objects of their sympathies surely it should not be thed , which is made by their , the pretext of unmerited repro and. Injury but rather an epithet which would Point to their oppressors As the objects of reprobation. Should nothing preferable be suggested i would say without presuming to dictate that a a oppressed Romeri amp a or a Frim me can would be More suitable and less objectionable than a a coloured american a v .,.w. B. Pm �?�660 so we see the difference Between free and slave labor to be con,8i durable e Veu. If had the Szvcs Given him. But if we take into account what May be paid to doctors for the preservation of their Heidith the trouble of keeping up paroles to prevent insurrections the Little Confidence that can be placed in saves and if one run away or die what it will take to replace , we win. Find that the pro of Ike a Bax a at Best Only imaginary. the More Worlem the in newells Abd the More they can earn the greater the difference in favor of free labor. I know that save hollers Are opposed to emancipation because they suppose that if they to. Have raves a ii wives and Dailig by disgraced by having to wait on themselves. His objection is easily obviated. Wealth will always command influence. People who have Money can always find those who for an adequate compensation will perform menial offices for them. I make no id to us comparisons Between the Dies of the North and those of the South nor do think there is room for any. But i would ask so Uthiem gentlemen. When you visit the North do you find the a dts a there less handsome less polite or less intelligent than those of the South in All that i by these r , is that women May be ladies though they pay their servants i do not propose my calculations As being perfectly accurate i May have estimated the earnings of the save too High and his keeping too you gentlemen Are better judges of these matters t a n i Oan.

Peim it me then or through your paper to offer a few thoughts. For their consider Ira Tion. Gentlemen i believe it is generally thought by slave holders that abolitionists wish to deprive them of to licit property and even of their our uniform conduct proves this not to he the Case. We May not have it in our Power to produce a Genera revolt of the slaves but surely no one can doubt that had we disposed we might have produced innit Erabio private massacres. This you know we4iave never attempt to do. I have never seen abolitionist who did not ass in be rely the pros Crity o f to a 8lave Sta to As o f the free.

Pass a Noss it of one of the numerous ways in which Severy de Preves the moral and political principles of the to Ider free Sta tes is the continual emigration of slaveholders through them with their human Chat Tek. How can men help having their notions of the dignity of human nature lowered and their regard for the sacredness of human rights greatly lessened by being comp called to be the frequent witnesses of human beings in chains driven like cattle and whipped worse than beasts. Such arc the exhibitions with which the foul monster of slavery at once outrages and corrupts our feelings. Hig h time is it for the principle to be established by our courts that by virtue of our Noble Constitution the moment a slaves foot touches our soil by the win of his master a this chains fall off and slavery of image. Ifs Afagh a a Jbv. 10, 1837, my. Editor a about ten of clock on monday the 2d Day of october last two families from the Eastern part of Virginia after remaining in our Village about one hour or More passed through bound for Missouri. The whole caravan ced of about six by human Hein mjg is he or More were time they were i took my gun and started out on a rating expedition. They took the Wil Mingus Road and i took the Xenia Road. The roads were about half a mile Distant of each other. I had proce eded about one mile and a half fro m to in when my Zutten Tion was arrested by the m Ost tre Mendeu shrieks i Ever heard come from a human being. A soon caught the course of the sound and taking my gun in my hand started in a direction As fast As i could. After running about half a mile i came to a Point on the Wilmington Road Between a half and one mile of town. Still hearing the screams. 1 turned my eyes Down the Road and about a Hundred Yards off beheld an object of pity. A female of about a dirty years of age was receiving tiie raw bide from her brutal Metar and Hia be your save is no Sailor a therefore the y aukes do your carrying and bring Home the profits. Your planter it a is no merchant and his son is no clerk a therefore the Yankees and other northerners do your h 0 Mere Han dozing and. As nobody who has. Money and i leave likes to trus l it to the Protection of Lynth Law they too bring their wealth away from Severy. Your slaveholder and horse racer and Gambler Are improvident and prodigal a therefore they pay interest to the shylock in Wall Street new York. Gambling is subject to the below fever in hot weather a therefore gentlemen of property spend their Summers and their fortunes at Saratoga and Ballstown spa. Thus is the doctrine of the text established that a fall the Money of this no ton flows to the North by reason of Severy. Rippli eation. 2. Talk is neither food nor physic a which leads to the Intro Gemerd 3. Which is to turn your slaves into property holders Lahore so payers and Consumers a by Abou Tion. So rate in he in the ree Procai and daily inter Lprse of to see corresponding passions set in action. As i amp the natural world one planet exhibits the Light or Shadow of Emo that so in the met physical mind reflects mind and hence our Good or evil in society depends. Now in applicator. To the present Case what passion predominates in the mind of him who stands ready to Wield tie weapon of death upon Hia Neighbour no matter whether it be for the purpose of a Gre fasion rec be or the purpose of defence for it is Ira Presil a to draw the line of demarcation Between these motives in Alt cases. Abolitionists of taking up the weapon defence however pure May be their intentions m doing will inevitably arouse the Concord Stafki so Cne Miest it a fral ill file bitter if Taral fruits it in a ski Tato labor is so of disgraceful that there Are thousands who would rather starve than work a rather 8 than starved and will murder rather than do Eithe if. The old Man below it appears had got his Money by taking it out of the bodies of his negroes a the murderers got it by taking his body and that of his wife. The same thin ssh will be done in Cincinnati when slavery beco Mes. Popu Lar and labor degrading. Labourers and property holders look to it your interests Are one. The people in Date ii 6 skies tie it tel Sar by duels and otherwise a even those cases which get into the news papyri which Are hut a if living As they people a grave Yard Mead. Following is from the Nat. Intelligencer a the spirit of War insatiable enmity in the their oppo Sers. Here it May be a objected Thal abolitionists wer to adopt the principles of resistance they would Render themselves noxious to the imposition of their would be imposed upon and even oven them. From this Pimon.
